Chris Swindells - 05 October 2012
The band last played the festival in 1999 and their Friday night headline performance in 2013 will be their second at
Rock Werchter. Rammstein were announced to headline Rock Werchter last month.
The announcement quashes rumours that the band's show at Hyde Park, London this summer would be their last. When asked about the show in an interview with The Guardian if it would be the last live show for Blur, lead singer Damon Albarn replied: "I think so, yeah. In all likelihood, I would say so."
Rock Werchter 2013 takes place from Thursday
July 4th to Sunday July 7th 2013 in Werchter, Belgium.
Tickets for Rock Werchter 2013 will go on sale as from Friday November 2nd. More Rock Werchter ticket information will be announced soon.
In an online announcement Blur said: "Thank you for waiting... Rock Werchter is about to announce that Blur will headline next July. We're excited.. hope to travel in 2013 to play to more of our lovely fans who we haven't seen for a while. Don't know where yet, we'll tell as soon as we do.."
No further Blur shows have been confirmed for 2013 but amongst the European dates a handful of British festivals are in the running for Blur shows, with Reading and Leeds a strong rumour.
